The Abaca Group recently introduced another concept to their growing list of restaurants not only in Cebu but also in Manila. This time around, they wanted everyone to taste the zesty, cheesy and tasty flavors of Mexican food by opening Red Lizard Taqueria, a more affordable version of their popular Maya Mexican Restaurant.
Red Lizard Taqueria introduces a fun Mexican food concept by offering affordable Mexican dishes without compromising the flavors and ingredients. Their menu includes some mexican favorites- tacos, burritos, and nachos just to name a few. The restaurant features a wall illustration about Red Lizard, an undefeated Mexican luchador with a 35-year winning streak, who is also the inspiration behind the name of the restaurant. The food at Red Lizard are cooked to order. Customers order at the counter and the kitchen staff prepares it for the customers to enjoy the food while it’s hot and fresh.
I was invited to try some of the food Red Lizard is offering. I got really excited because some of the Mexican foods that they served are similar to my Maya favorites.
